Tips:

1. It is better to use powered sugar, rather than coarse one.

2. In case you are using salted butter, don’t put salt in the batter, otherwise, the cookies will become salty

3. Do not whisk after adding the flour.

4. Put the spatula in warm water, to spread the batter on the baking tray evenly.

5. A little baking soda can be added to the batter, after adding the flour, based on preference.

6. It is better to use silvered almonds than slices. (Slivered almonds are almonds that have been sliced very thinly into little sticks. They differ from sliced almonds, which arealmonds sliced across their diameter giving you much bigger pieces.)
